Our take on the Soundcast VG7

At 21 pounds and 1-1/2 feet tall, the Soundcast VG7's quite a bit larger and heavier than most Bluetooth speakers. But when you hear what it can do, you'll appreciate the difference. This brawny speaker features four separately enclosed drivers plus a down-firing subwoofer for powerful and detailed 360° sound. Indoor and outdoor EQ modes help you get the sound dialed in right for your space. And the VG7 is waterproof, so you can use it poolside or at the beach.

Couldn't be happier

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Buying a third speaker for our camp. Have two at home around pool. Everyone who hears them can not believe the clarity and the bass. Battery lasts a long time. Longer than any pool and evening event. Had two of the older models "out cast" miss the blue ambient lighting but needed the Bluetooth.

Pros: Sound Battery life Style

Did not meet my expectations Sorry



Defiantly a musical insrument!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am surprised to see no reviews for this speaker. I bought one of these from Crutchfield a while ago. I bought this without hearing it on the highly recommended review from Sound and Vision. I trust these guys. Been a subscriber for years. Well, I am not one to do reviews, but I feel I need to since there isn`t any for this speaker. I bought this not for the Bluetooth, but for the 3.5mm input from my laptop hooked in line with my Audio Quest Dragonfly Red(which is perhaps the best audio pc I have ever bought, especially for the money!) and a Big Sur interconnect. With radio music and you tube music I give it a B+ cause these are not HiFi signals., but is defiantly acceptable! With my CD quality music service(Tidal) the sound has me floored at times. Defiantly an A to an A+ at times. Detailed delightful highs without being bright,beautiful mids being full and solid, and solid bass. I found that you have to turn on the bass boost and turn it off when your inside cause sometimes it can get boomy with it, not so much outside though. I am sure with placement with this speaker can be a good equalizer, which I have not felt a need to do yet. So lately I have been kinda lazy and just been running my cell phone`s Bluetooth with this speaker and as long as it`s with my music service it is very impressive for being wireless, which I did n`t have much faith in. Not too impressed with my radio of my cellphone, it is listenable however. Overall very impressed! Would b

Pros: See review, not sorry with this purchase at all!

Cons: Expensive? You get what you pay for most of the time! Not the last word in bass, but very very good! Again placement can be the answer, that I have not experimented with to be fair.

Class-D Amplification: The VG7 uses Class-D amplification to power the full-range drivers and woofer. A 15W (RMS) x 2Ch Class-D amplifier powers the four 3" full-range drivers, while a 30W (RMS) x 1Ch Class-D amplifier powers the 7" long-throw woofer.
